17 July 2015 Deep Sea Fishing Club leased premises – Trust Resolution

Council, as the Corporate Manager of the Coffs Coast State Park Trust, has resolved not to extend the current lease of the Deep Sea Fishing Club - which runs to 2021 - and any subsequent venture on the land will be subject to an open market Expression of Interest (EOI).
 
In making decisions about commercial undertakings on the Reserve, the Trust must consider the best use, commercial viability and commercial return. It must also ensure those decisions are consistent with the Crown Lands Act, relevant Plans of Management and the best interests of the Reserve, particularly bearing in mind any directions by the relevant Minister of the State Government.
 
Council, as the Corporate Manager of the Trust, within the constraints of the Crown Lands Act, remains focused on ensuring that the current and future use of the precinct continues its emphasis on recreational fishing.
 
The Deep Sea Fishing Club, and other interested parties, will be entitled to submit a proposal in any future EOI process for the site.
